Valentine Snow Globes

One of my daughters favorite Chrismas presents this year was a snow globe.  She could sit for an hour and shake it and stare at it.  It was adorable and even her younger brother loved looking at it with her.  So for Valentines Day we created some "shaker's" as my daughter would call them.  

Supplies needed:
Baby Food Jars
Glitter
Water
Styrofoam ball 
Heart shape (I found these hearts at the dollar store but the black one is just a pipe cleaner that I formed into a heart.  Use what you have.  :) 
Hot Glue Gun
Paint for the lid of the baby food jar

How we did it:
I cut the Styrofoam ball in half.  Then I hot glued it to the cap of the baby food jar.  While I was doing that my daughter painted the top of the lids pink.  Then we placed the heart in the middle of the Styrofoam.  Then my daughter picked glitter out and shook some in the jar and then she helped me put water in.  Screw the lid on tight and have fun shaking and looking at the pretty glitter.  

We are going to print a little heart gift tag and give these as gifts to her Awana teachers... I think they will love them.

Such a cute gift idea to grandparents, teachers, friends, etc. You are so creative!
Thanks,

NEW TIP: Use Glycerin in the water to create a thicker fluid and then the glitter will linger longer before falling.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
